I have to keep my faith and always believe I’m in God’s hands especially during this time of my life. I’ve never hurt myself or anyone else during my seizures especially when I drove unaware of having a seizure. I no longer drive but I always told myself, someone drove that car when you weren’t able and that would be God’s hands driving me to safety. When I lived alone not knowing I even had seizures but just waking up to unexplained lip, tongue injuries, or on the floor next to my bed BUT still I was kept safe because things could have gone horribly worse. I say all of this to say, just when things feel so wrong in life I have to remind myself of the little things that have gone so right like just waking up, my family waking up, my 2 dogs waking up, the ability to walk,talk,hear, and see when combined it reminds me that there is a higher power over my life and for that I am grateful and joyful.

God would never put anything on your back that you couldn’t carry! So as Francis2 said show that happy love from God when you have something hard,(that Jesus can help you with) to others. You never know who needs that happy love more than yourself. My saying is “There is a positive in every negative “. Look deeper into anything difficult that you have to deal with and you will find a positive reason for it occurring! In the meantime keep that beautiful happiness you can provide going. God has you on this path for some positive reason!🥰. Finding happiness for others will make you feel good about yourself! Have a great day! You have already made mine great!

this is before the brain surgery in 2001. we were at the cleveland clinic... we were out of options... and surgery was the only option at that time. months before the surgery... we (mom and dad and me) needed prayers. we got outside of my faith and found 'father michael' from the clinic. he said some future stuff. idk but i had a funny feeling and mom was more than in awe. the next year (after the surgery) we made epilepsy ribbons pins. and went back to the cleveland clinic. we ask for 'father michael' and thay have no records of that person. anyway the future thing came true. i think michael was (and is) are guardian angel.
